    Opera is one of the pioneering web technology browser, however it never became as popular as you would expect it to be.
    Now they are moving away to adopt webkit in order to change it's market share:

    Opera gears up at 300 million users

    The problem is innovations. Opera is factory of innovations, which others adopted. I am hoping they continue the innovation.

    The desktop version is 12-13mbs and installs within seconds, the speed dial i guess is truly theirs and they truly deserve more... good step on their part.
